A couple of years ago Hubby and I made a snow family outdoor display. Our son-in-law's father had some 1" x 4" lumber that had been removed from the walls of a store, and was being thrown away. So hubby stopped by on his way home from work, and brought it home.
I had been wanting to make a large wooden snowman to display during the winter. Something that would make me smile when I pulled into the driveway on the dark, cold, winter evenings.
After a few hours labor, the used boards, and some miscellaneous chair parts, and scrap trim, and this is what we came up with. The big guy is a bit over 7' tall and the little one around 3'.
I look forward to getting them out again this winter. Maybe this coming weekend (if it ever quits raining) they'll once again bring a bit of cheer to our home.
Do you have something you have made (or purchased) for display during the holidays?
